Cash Money/Young Money incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has just been sentenced to three years probation for a drug charge in Arizona.
While serving one year at Rikers Island prison in New York, Weezy pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug stemming from a 2008 incident in Yuma, Arizona where authorities found cocaine, ecstasy and a loaded handgun on his tour bus.
Today a judge sentenced him to serve three years probation once he is release from Rikers. Weezy accepted a plea deal with prosecutors that dropped additional charges of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Philly rapper Meek Millz just dropped the official video to his hit single “Rose Red” off of his Gangsta Grillz Flamers 3 mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama. Meek Millz is enjoying success on the indie route, and is focusing more on building a bigger momentum than signing a major deal. His biggest hit record “Make Em Say” peaked # 94 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.
Meek is also featured in the Show & Prove section of XXL‘s July/August issue. I am so glad that Meek is finally featured in XXL magazine. I was in the office debating with the editors for two weeks straight, about why Meek should be featured in the magazine. My hard work and long hours of debating paid off. Congrats and much success Meek.
Mr. Philadelphia, coming soon.
